When The Wolf Comes is a game of storytelling, heroism, and epic struggle set during a reimagined Ragnarök, a parallel timeline where the Norse rule seas and stars with restless fleets and Christianity has been put to the Viking sword. 

A complete tabletop role playing game in one book, When The Wolf Comes provides everything you need to create and play characters, form warbands in pursuit of fame and plunder, and tell new Norse sagas with your friends. The book also gives Game Masters all the tools they need to create adventures, a bestiary full of deadly creatures, a detailed history of the Níu Heimar, and extensive advice to help run the game. 

When The Wolf Comes features a whole heap of rules and features to help you unleash your inner Space Viking, including: 

New Norse Origins from the monstrous jötnar to the álfar, the true scions of Yggdrasil: be warned, you'll not find Tolkienesque pointy-eared archers or wee faerie folk here! 

Storied Heroes from the Wand-Wed to the Widefarer, build futuristic Norse characters drawn from the pages of the sagas. 

100+ Spells and Gifts Norse magical tradition is marked by sacrifice and ritual, etched in secrets, and blooded in war. Master spell-song and seiðr – or learn to harness your hamr, hugr and other Gifts of Nature. 

Old Norse for Modern Gamers Each path, spell and weapon has its own authentic Norse nomenclature. It's up to you whether you play as a Varangian or a Væringi, an Outlaw or an Utlagi, a Thread Rider or a þráðriða. 

Judgement of the Norns There are unfathomable minds at play in the Vikingverse, twisting the lives of mortals to their intricate design - and with them come new rules for fate, honour, shame, shell shock and lineages. 

A Ready-Made Adventure Grab your battle rifle and venture across the World’s End in the first chapter of Thought & Memory Saga. 

Let your enemies fear the sting of your weapons, and your allies be heartened by your courage – and should you fall, be sure that it is a glorious end, worthy of song and the pride of future generations.

Just got the PDF and I really like the setting and how everything is put together.

Just one gripe - the PDF loads terribly slow on my PC and even slower on my pad, where I usually read most of the time.

Any chance we can get an optimized, compressed along with the original one?

Thanks! I will check with the design team. I suspect it is the large images that are "weighing it down".

PoD was mentioned a while ago, I know there is an offset but SotDL has both, so I was wondering if this would be the same.

The plan is to get the offset print run out to backers, then set up POD once Kickstarters have it. Fairest approach to our supporters. But soon!

Hi Ian

There seems to be some text missing between end of p.251 and beginning of p.252

Thanks

Kerry, not ignoring this. We will set up print on demand once we send the book to the printer (which is imminent - Rob is just recovering from the Weird Wizard Kickstarter and we just fixed a text glitch on page 251).

Hello! the book is great, but I noticed that it lacked bookmarks which makes using it a bit of a chore, will the bookmarks be added later?

They should have generated with the contents. The team will look at it later this week, after they launch the Weird Wizard Kickstarter!

Chunky pdf with lots of fun lore and plenty of character options. Admittedly, it will take me another read to fully wrap my head around how many of the concepts integrate, but this game screams "epic campaign". Fans of SotDL will have no problem with the mechanics.

This is an amazing rpg based on Shadow of the Demon Lord. The layout, art, backstory and details of the races and classes are great with a well thought out history and backstory [what if the Norse faith stopped the spread of the Christian faith and rose to be the dominant religion]! Love the magic system and Gifts also. Who hasn't been looking for a Vikings in Space rpg! Recommend anyone who loves SotDL or Viking games to check this out. Note: it could also be set in the historic fantasy Norse timeframe.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.

Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
